LRA SIF RECOGNIZES MEMBERS FOR SAFETY

METAIRIE, La.The Louisiana Restaurant Association Self Insurer’s Fund (LRA SIF) for workers’ compensation proudly distributed 1,752 safety awards to eligible members last month.

Members awarded must not have filed a workers’ compensation claim during the entire (calendar) 2010 fund year, or reported a claim for reporting purposes only (meaning no monies were paid on the claim). Because of these members, the LRA SIF was able to return another great dividend of $2.87 million this spring, bringing its total dividend and safety award distribution to more than $92.8 million. This year marked the 23rd consecutive year that the LRA SIF has distributed dividends.

The LRA SIF has a dedicated loss prevention department that conducts comprehensive safety inspections, monthly meeting safety fact sheets, safety training videos, safety seminars and meetings and safety training materials—all at no cost to LRA SIF members. This service is a vital component in educating members about safety and assisting in a safe work environment.

The LRA SIF has been distributing safety awards since 1998—13 consecutive years. The nearly 1,800 members receiving the award this year represents nearly 80 percent of the entire LRA SIF membership. Safety in the workplace is of the utmost importance and it’s something LRA SIF members consistently excel in, with 1,712 awards distributed in 2008 and 1,647 in 2009.

Many LRA SIF members proudly display their awards as a sign to both their customers and employees of their attention to safety in the workplace.

“Safety is a key factor in daily workplace operations,” said LRA SIF Vice President of Loss Prevention Victor Balbuena, ARM, CWCP. “We congratulate all of our members on this accomplishment.”
